ACT Test Preparation

Like the SAT, the ACT is a nationally recognized college admissions exam. The ACT differs in content as it consists of English, Math, Reading, and Science sections as well as an optional 30-minute Writing Test for universities that require a writing score. Although the ACT is more knowledge-based than the SAT, it still doesn’t reflect the lessons taught or tests taken in a typical high school classroom. One of the main reasons for this discrepancy is that the ACT requires that students read and analyze information from a variety of subjects (science, social sciences, humanities, literature, data) very quickly. That's why preparation can make a huge difference in scores as students will learn to master the specific skills and concepts covered on the test.

Which test is easier? Which test do colleges prefer? Should I prepare for both tests?

The answers to these questions really depend on each individual student. All four-year colleges weigh the SAT and ACT equally, so it can be a challenge to figure out which test to take. At PSA, we recommend that students explore both options by taking a practice test for each exam. We can then analyze both test results and advise students on which test they have more potential on and should therefore focus on.  To schedule a diagnostic test at PSA, contact us here.
